This Notes database uses Apache libraries http://poi.apache.org, http://pdfbox.apache.org and http://incubator.apache.org/odftoolkit to extract text from and index the following file types: doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, vsd, pdf, odt, odp, ods, wpd, txt, htm and html.
This in turn allows users to search File Systems (server-based or local) using standard Full Text search queries, from their Notes Client or Browser, and see the File System results combined with results from their Notes data, e.g. Mail, Archives, Applications etc.
The result is that all the data they need can be found in one place, and from a single source - their Notes Client and/or Browser (including Smartphone, Tablet or iNotes). File System security is defined by the Administrator, Notes security is as normal.
As an example, several clients make technical information stored in PDFs and Notes 'Knowledge Bases' available to users of their Intranets, via search, e.g:
"Your software is a big hit with our field sales and technical service group, and our product managers. It saves time answering customer questions around the globe. Thank you for this elegant solution." - Mitch Holtzer, Cookson Electronics, New Jersey.
